The worldwide shift towards cleaner, greener vitality sources as soon as once more seems to be selecting up velocity.
While the world’s deal with local weather change understandably took a backseat to the Covid-19 pandemic for a lot of the previous 18 months, that concentrate on local weather change has began to return in a robust manner.
In truth, our transition right into a post-pandemic surroundings is triggering numerous vital alternatives within the inexperienced vitality house.
Much of the early consideration of the clear vitality motion was centered on lithium due to the heavy consideration paid to the electrical car markets.
But a stark actuality has emerged for lithium in that it has turn into more and more apparent that lithium might not have the ability to present sufficient energy to assist a full transition of heavier industries to scrub and sustainable vitality sources.
Many of those “heavy” industries – together with the maritime and delivery industries – have already begun to seek for options that may assist energy a sustainable future.
One of these various vitality sources – which seems to have the potential to offer an incredible quantity of commercial energy – could also be one thing you had by no means thought of: ammonia.
Ammonia Could Be a key “Fuel of the Future”
The consultants at Chemical & Engineering News have called ammonia a gas of the longer term which may be “a perfect commodity for a future hydrogen economy.”
And one firm may emerge as a pacesetter within the rapidly-growing Green Ammonia house…
Offering early publicity and a potential first-mover benefit for buyers.

Energy of Lithium-Ion Batteries
Before diving into what we expect are AmmPower’s (CSE:AMMP; OTC:AMMPF) daring steps ahead on this rapidly-growing business, let’s take a step again to look at ammonia’s potential as an vitality supply.
Ammonia, in fact, is a compound made from nitrogen and hydrogen – with a chemical components of NH3.
It is produced naturally within the human physique and in nature – in water, soil and air…even in tiny micro organism molecules.
Of course, ammonia’s important use – not less than nowadays – is in fertilizer.
But it might be quickly rising as a probably game-changing supply of fresh vitality.
Chemical & Engineering News experiences that, “ammonia could come to the (climate change) rescue by capturing, storing, and shipping hydrogen for use in emission-free fuel cells and turbines. Efforts are also underway to combust ammonia directly in power plants and ship engines.”[i]
Ammonia provides numerous essential benefits over different vitality sources, equivalent to:
Ammonia is reported to have 1.eight instances the vitality density of hydrogen…
And ammonia must be saved at -33 Celsius, as in comparison with the extra logistically complicated -253 Celsius that’s required for hydrogen storage.
